***** Highest Recommendation, F. Paul Pacult (Spirit Journal): "New copper penny bright; impeccable purity. What strikes me about the opening aroma is the balance between the alcohol, the oak, and the grain, which all seem to be pulling the wagon in harmony; it isn't until aeration unleashes the spirit that I detect the feistiness of the 100-proof alcohol, but fortunately that doesn't overshadow the leathery, mildly sweet breakfast cereal , honeyed graininess. Aftertaste is of chocolate covered walnuts and that ever-present honey. A masterpiece of seamless integration, bourbon profundity, and grace."

'Top 50 Spirits of 2008' and Classic (96-100)/Highest Recommendation, Wine Enthusiast: "The beautifully balanced bouquet features leathery, mildly sweet breakfast cereal and honeyed grainy scents. The entry is equally splendid with smoldering flavors of light caramel, nougat and oaky vanillin; the mid-palate features tastes of toasted cereal, toasted rye bread, popcorn and fresh honey. Aftertaste is of chocolate covered walnuts and that ever-present honey. Best Buy."

Wine Spectator: "(style: smooth - usually wheat-based) This is floral and somewhat herbal in the nose. Maintains that in the mouth, adding a dry licorice edge and finish that would be just the thing after a meal. This single barrel bottling is a chance to taste one of Four Roses' 10 'blending' Bourbons on its own. 100 proof. (1/31/12)"
